The “This Clown” project –or– If I’d only known bagging on iTunes would make me popular

Sunday, 27 August 2006

I haven’t been insulted well, ever, and it hurts my feelings. This has been a topic of lament here before and in other items unpublished. I think I’m not trying hard enough. I’m irritating all the wrong people. Like the addict who wrote this. No one with any panache or flair for a turn of phrase ever goes after me. Just garden variety, toothless snakes.

It’s a only a token gesture but if you link to me, using either the home page — http://sedition.com/ — or the “author” page — http://sedition.com/a/951 — and use the text, “this clown,” for the link, I will link back to you on this page.

I’m not asking for a blogroll or anything, just an inline, below the fold, straight to the archives clickable without any rel="nofollow" shenanigans. That’s plenty for what the goal. A Google bomb so the world will ever after—well, for the next two years anyway—know who is meant whenever anyone talks about this clown.

Your link back will appear here if you go through with linking me as “this clown.”

It’ll take quite a few of you to get me to number one for it: http://www.google.com/search?q=this+clown

I won’t rest until I get there. Or until I’m tired. I might rest then too.
